About The James Chicago-Magnificent Mile, Chicago

Magnificent shopping

The James Chicago-Magnificent Mile puts you a block from Michigan Avenue on the famed Magnificent Mile, where high-end shops, restaurants, and nightlife light up the busy city center. Chicago's L train stops 3 blocks away at Grand/State.

Skyscrapers with a view

You'll be snuggled among some of the tallest buildings in the United States, like the John Hancock Center 4 blocks away, but a 5-minute walk will also get you to the Water Tower and Navy Pier. Much-celebrated Millennium Park is a 10-minute car or bus ride.

Destination dining
You can arrange personal training in the fitness center, indulge in a massage, and borrow a bike from the concierge.

Eco-friendly luxury

Nice hotel on the Magnificent Mile
Gerard was extremely helpful when checking in. He helped with the luggage and made a great dinner reservation for us. The staff is very professional and the location is great.

Poor2.0
I don't recommend this hotel.
Was disappointed in the quality of the property. While the employees were friendly, the rooms were cramped and in poor condition. They weren't especially clean, the bathroom door didn't close, and there was no ventilation fan in the bathroom, so the entire room steamed up when you showered. The only redeeming quality of the hotel is the location. I don't recommend this hotel.

Really close to the magnificent mile! Hotel was nice and clean, it is an older building to it wasn’t as luxurious as newer nearby hotels.

We have been staying at The James for years. It is showing its age and needs a little spruce-up. The rooms are looking well lived in, the common areas are in better shape.
